  • Who are we? 
    In India, the idea of health food shops has just now started taking root. There are only a half-dozen health-food stores in the whole country. Eco-Nut takes pride in being one of them.  We are consistently trying to sell more and more organically-grown food items. 

    What do we want? 
    At Eco-Nut, our motivation is a total approach to good health. Therefore, we not only stock food items conducive to good health, but also, herbs, herb powders, Siddha and Ayurvedic herb remedies and books related to health.  We further plan to create awareness and promote good health among the people.  With the blessings of our customers, we hope to achieve these objectives very soon. 

    Where are we? 
    Eco-Nut is located in the high-hills of Kodaikanal, India, in the beautiful Palni Hill country.  Kodaikanal was founded by American missionaries in the late 18th century. 

    Where do we fit in? 
    The concept of health food originated in the West over 25 years ago.  Men and women concerned by the pollution around them, and the dangers it caused to the environment, began to analyze all modes of modern life.  They realized that constant use of fertilizers and pesticides in the cultivation of food products could be the cause of increasing incidences of illnesses.  So,  they recommended going back to the natural way of producing food.  Many farmers gave up using pesticides and fertilizers and started cultivating their land in the natural way their fathers and grandfathers did.  These naturally-grown food-items - grains, pulses, fruits and vegetables - were sold in one corner of the supermarkets,  labeled as 'Health Food'.  Thus was born the idea of health food shops,  which,  in western countries,  have now grown into gigantic supermarkets themselves.  
    In the range of shops and stores selling health food and products, we are a small store in the best sense of the term. Each customer who comes to our store is an individual, not a consumer. We treat them as we would a friend, a fellow traveler in the journey to natural health.
